BHP BillitonOlympic Dam, SA

During 2016 BHPB Olympic Dam hired a Bat Booth® to clean toxic and poisonous dust from the personnel and it performed to the highest standard. Despite working in an acidic environment, Bat Booth® excellent performance included passing every test and even the complete elimination of certain injuries. 

After the trial, BHPB asked Mideco to build two Bat Booths® to their standard.

These included:

  • Stainless steel case
  • Fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) grating
  • Stainless steel piping and fittings
  • Pressure relief valve (PRV)
  • A special plug, that allowed to run the unit on plug&play principle

Bat Booths® have been installed at BHP Olympic Dam site in 2017. Since that time they have been working perfectly, only required filters replacing.
